The Inside Story: Power Struggles

Scott urges David to use Dr. Chappell’s heart valve on Ian. Zach and Kendall are faced with an impossible decision.

David and Adam come to an understanding on Wednesday, May 6. JR seethes after learning that Adam used Little Adam to get David to do his bidding. Zach and Kendall give David the go ahead to perform surgery on Ian. JR desperately tries to reach Scott to stop Ian’s surgery after Dr. Chappell informs him and Adam that he’s discovered a serious defect with the heart valve. Zach tries to ease Kendall’s fears as they wait for word on Ian. Adam orders both Scott and JR to keep their mouths shut about Dr. Chappell’s warning. Adam basks in the reemergence of Chandler Enterprises on the back of Ian’s successful operation. Dr. Chappell refuses to accept the Chandler’s bribe. Scott breathes easier when David informs him that he was able to correct a problem he found with the heart valve’s design during surgery. Scott is taken aback by Adam’s ruthlessness and later makes a gruesome discovery when he returns to Dr. Chappell’s office.
